Thread: Thunderstorm Fear.

    Hey Sharoo,

    Something my trainer did with his dog (A Cav) who was afraid of thunder/storms was turn it into a game, so whenever there was a storm he played ball with Stevie (the Cav) and now whenever there is a storm coming Stevie runs to the ball draw instead of shivering and being afraid. Not sure if this will work but maybe you can try it or something similar ie: something your dog REALLY enjoys doing, before the fear becomes worse and nothing will work. Maybe speak to a trainer who could help you with this or something similar.

    Very true Chipps.
    Dogs that look to their owners as leaders are going to freak out when they see their leader scared 'Why are you scared? Should I be scared? Yes im scared now.'

    We've got a big wet headed our way right now.

    Guess who is not going for a walk tonight. I don't feel too guilty, we did the beach this morning.
